Friday Favorites–Back to School

My son hates that I’m writing this.  He cringes every time I mention school supplies, clothes, or schedules.  He wants his summer to continue, blissfully unaware the first day of school is knocking on his door.  Poor kid.

I might have squealed like a little girl when I saw these Pencil Nails from The Daily Nail.


I always want to make a special treat for the kids to have when they get home from their first day of school.  It rarely seems to work out, but I might find some time this year to make these Krispy Apple Treats from Gourmet Mom-On-The-Go.

I’ve been hanging onto this one since last year.  The Blackberry Vine has the basic ingredients needed to make these Candy Pencils.


What I like about this Lunch Bag from The Long Thread is that it can hold larger items than the typical lunchbox.


The see-through window on this Binder Pouch from Sew, Mama, Sew makes it special.


I’ve seen some very plain stand-up folding iPad cases, but with this pattern you can purchase from Sewspoiled on Etsy, yours could be unique and colorful.


Don’t forget the teachers when school starts again!  This gift by Fireflies and Jellybeans is cute, easy and would work for anyone.

June Pfaff Daley shares an adorable Lunch Survey on her blog.


This Checklist Place Mat from Family Fun is genius. 


I love this Lined Paper Tee from Ucreate.  Click through to see the even more adorable onesie.


I’m off to help my poor kid dry his back-to-school tears.
